Our canine hotel offers the following amenities:
  • Know Thy Dog is the only canine facility in SW Montana owned, managed and staffed by established Professional Dog Trainers.
  • The facility has over 6000 sq. ft. of indoor space with five fenced play and training yards on an acre of property. Our yards have 7’ solid wood fencing for security with a 10″ dig down beneath..
  • Missing your pup while you are away? (Of course you are!) We post pictures of your dogs playing EVERY DAY on our Facebook page. In addition, you can text our staff to check on your dog during their stay.
  • We run rotating supervised playgroups from 7am to 11:30 pm EVERY DAY. All boarding dogs enjoy several hours of playing in calm, supervised playgroups of 15 or less dogs during the day and night, hand-selected by our trainers to make sure our furry clients are safe and comfortable while socializing.
  • We offer tons of one-on-one attention for dogs approved for solo boarding (dogs who do not socialize with other dogs). Solo dogs are accepted case-by-case and receive quality couch and play time with our staff.
  • During play, dogs are rotated outside (and fully supervised) for potty breaks every 15 minutes. We do not want to encourage indoor potty accidents.
  • We only use dog-friendly, non-toxic cleaning products inside our building and on our property.
  • Shuttle service is available to Big Sky for boarding and board-and-train dogs.
Small / Quiet Dog Boarding Unit Offers:
  • A separate small-dog suite offers a free-range lounge environment with leather and suede couches, designer dog beds and a private fenced yard. Please note that we do not accept elderly or fragile dogs.
Rates: $40/day for 1st dog. $65/day for 2 dogs. Inquire about multiple-dog rates. No intact males over 10 months old.

Know Thy Dog offers a zen-like, real home environment with designer furniture and backyard-style play yards. Our environment is not a good fit for every dog and for the safety of your dog and our peace of mind, we have a screening process prior to accepting dogs.

Know Thy Dog is selectively accepting new clients. Please note the following restrictions prior to contacting us: We do NOT accept intact males over 10 months old, dogs that have separation anxiety and/or are on medication for separation anxiety, dogs that pick-up and eat inedible objects (socks, bedding, rocks, sticks), are destructive or bark excessively during nap time or overnight or pee/leg lift on indoor furnishings. We do not accept elderly or fragile dogs. All dogs in our facility must be safe around other dogs – no human or dog-aggressive dogs accepted. Most new dogs will require a trial day at our facility prior to confirming a boarding appointment. We reserve the right to refuse service to any customer or dog that we feel is not a good fit for our program.


When booking your boarding reservation, you may include any of the following options on a per day basis:

  • structured pack walk (on-leash) $20 | Our head trainer, Max Eaton, will take your dog on a 30-minute calm, intentional pack walk with other trained and balanced dogs. Pack walks are both physically and mentally exhausting and play an integral role in balancing anxious or nervous dogs. Offered Monday to Friday.

Health Requirements: We do not accept intact male dogs over 10 months old. Our programs require dogs over 6 months of age to have the following: proof of a current Rabies vaccine, Bordatella and Distemper/Parvo vaccine. We will accept a titer test OR veterinarian letter of exemption. Due to the fact that we have dogs coming in from out of state, we require your dog be on a flea/tick preventative. Puppies must be a minimum of 9 weeks old to enter our facility and must have at least one vaccine at least 7 days prior to arrival. Please read our statement about Kennel Cough.
